These yummy roasted celeriac steaks are served with a creamy green tahini sauce, toasted hazelnut, plus a side of sauteed mushrooms, spinach, and butter beans.
Celeriac is not always the most inspired veg but dressed with some zingy dressing, it really comes to life.
This is a vegan and gluten-free recipe that can be ready in less than 40 minutes.
How to cook celeriac steaks?
The aim is to cut the celeriac into four 2-cm [0.78″] thick slices/steaks. First, you will have to remove the knobbly bits and peel the celeriac. Depending on its shape, you will also have to cut out a bit of each end to have even slices. You can keep any offcuts to make soup and/ or vegetable stock.
You can fry the steaks either in a pan or roast them in the oven. I prefer to parboil the celeriac steaks first to shorten the cooking time. Once cooked, the steaks will be golden and soft.
Sauteed vegetables and green tahini sauce
These roasted celeriac steaks are served with sauteed mushrooms, spinach, and butter beans and topped with a creamy green tahini sauce. If you are short on time, you can gently saute the vegetables and prepare the green tahini sauce while the celeriac is cooking.
The hazelnuts can also be toasted at the same time.
For the green tahini sauce (inspired by Yotam Ottolenghi – of course!) I have used some parsley and basil. Season it to taste adding more or less lemon juice and /or maple syrup if needed
Once the celeriac steaks are cooked, serve them with the vegetable mixture. Top with green tahini sauce, extra capers, and toasted hazelnuts.
